It could not have been sweeter.
The Forrest Lady Rockets claimed another District 9A title Tuesday, hammering arch rival Cascade in Wartrace, 14-0. Forrest went downtown, via the long ball, banging out 14 hits, including out of the park home runs by Amanda Daughrity and Heather James.
Haley Mathis provided the large traveling crowd from Chapel Hill some extra added excitement with an electrifying inside the park homer in the fourth inning.
Ranked sixth in the latest Tennessean Mid-State Softball Poll, Forrest finished the regular season undefeated in district play at 12-0, 26-6 overall, and earned a bye in the first round of the District 9A Tournament, beginning Saturday in Chapel Hill.
